Click here for the West Nile Seasonal August 14th, 2017

Temperatures have been average for these last few weeks and mosquito infection rates have returned to average on the eastern and western edges of the state. However, humidity remains above average, and we continue to expect that 2018 will be an above-average year overall for WNV in SD. We expect that there will be around 147 cases, down from 148 in last week's prediction. These estimates will change if we receive any surprising weather or mosquito data, but the stability in estimates of human risk means that a coherent picture is emerging from all the data we continue to receive.
